Help: Ignition Coil Query

Postby Lightning » Wed Dec 12, 2012 5:03 am

Hi all,

I am looking for an ignition coil part# 90919-02236; does anyone know where I can buy it?. If not, can I use part# 90919-02230 instead, as it is easier for me to get, or are they different from each other?

Thanks for the help...

As far as I am aware, the 90919-02230 is for the GXE10 engine and the 90919-02236 is for the SXE10, which seems to be more rare and expensive. From what I've read, it seems that they are not interchangeable, but I just wanted to confirm, because the 90919-02230 is easier for me to get...

Yep, you have to get the Original one. All others don't work, found that out the hard way :?

Thanks for your assistance. One more question, does it make any sense to get the aftermarket version of the ignition coils, or should I only get originals? Does it really matter?

Thanks for your input...

Go for the originals. I tried one made by HUCO (german company i think). Looked exactly like the original, and even fired the spark plug, but the engine did not run properly.

Fitted original Toyota and smooth as ever...

I tried the Blueprint one and I can't feel any difference
Compare to OEM coil and half the price ...

..because it's "L" edition ..

Depending on the price, I would get the aftermarket ones; where did you get yours ChilledChef? Also, can anything else get damaged if I run my car on 3 ignition coils instead of 4 for too long?

Thanks for all the input guys.

Yes you're car can get damaged from running it with a coil down, borewash on the cylinder and damaging the cat are just 2 of the problems that are pretty pricey.

Thanks. Everybody else has been telling me there would be no damage at all; I really appreciate your response. Just for clarification the 'CAT' you're referring to is the Catalytic Converters, correct?

Thanks once again..

Yes I mean the catalytic converter, I would sort it sooner rather than later it might not cause any immediately noticeable damage driving about like it but it will damage the engine and cat (especially if its an auto with pre-cats) if its not sorted pretty soon.

I had some issues also with one of my coils, so I replaced with caldina gtt coils, and it works very well for me, mine is a 5AT.
